Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-18348) SVN credentials for SVN deploy process triggered via CI?
Date Wed, 05 Jun 2019 01:40:00 GMT


Chris Lambertus commented on INFRA-18348:

We are (still) working on documentation and a process for projects to use to deploy websites,
but other projects have done so. We offer a jenkins build node labelled git-websites which
allows projects to push to an asf-site branch from a jenkins job. I believe this also exists
in svn, but I'd have to get back to you on the specifics. We do not support pushing sites
from travis at this time. I will flag this for review at the next Infra discussion.

we have a build process that deploys the built website to SVN when commits are merged to master

> svn: E215004: Commit failed (details follow):
> svn: E215004: No more credentials or we tried too many times.
> Authentication failed

> As the committer whose credentials were used is not reachable, I just replaced them with
mine. But to be honest, 1) I am not sure if those will get blocked now as well (if our deploy
process is messed up somehow) and 2) I am not super comfortable that now _all_ automated deploys
will be attributed to me on SVN. This just feels wrong.

SVN credentials for this deploy to SVN?

> (I didn't create this deploy process and script, I am just trying to get it fixed somehow
as I just wasted an hour first trying to find out why our documentation didn't get properly
